Counselor engaged in sexualized behavior with inmate

On March 24, 2014, the Maine Board of Counseling Professionals Licensure formally reprimanded professional counselor Danielle Hackett and accepted the surrender of her license.

NY psychiatrist Melvin Pisetzner loses license for sex with patient, etc. from ’70s on

On April 21, 2014, the New York State Department of Health revoked the license of psychiatrist Melvin Pisetzner for, among other things, gross negligence, gross incompetence failure to maintain records, relative to his treatment of five patients, going back to the 1970s.

Pisetzner conceded to the Health Dept’s criticism that he failed to document medications, dosages and rationales for prescribing, re-prescribing for long periods without office visits and summarizing multiple visits rather that documenting each one.

The Dept’s committee also unanimously sustained allegations that Pisetzner engaged in a sexual relationship with a patient and made unexplained and inappropriate payments to the patient, for whom he was unable product any records from the 1970s to 2000.

Psychiatrist James R. Jarmuskewicz busted for peeping bathroom stalls

A Bemidji (Minnesota) area doctor specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry faces a charge of being a Peeping Tom in Louisiana after allegedly spying on another person at a college men’s room.

Dr. James Richard Jarmuskewicz, 57, of Wilton was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of Peeping Tom on Monday. In Minnesota, the equivalent charge would be interference with privacy. In Louisiana, the charge is actually called Peeping Tom and carries a maximum penalty of not more than a $500 fine and imprisonment for not more than six months.

Jarmuskewicz was arrested Monday afternoon by Louisiana State University Police after a complainant informed campus police officers that Jarmuskewicz had spied on him under a bathroom stall.

Jarmuskewicz allegedly followed a man into a third floor restroom and layed down on the floor to look under the stall as the complainant was using the restroom in the Middleton Library on Sunday, according to an affidavit of probable cause from the 19th Judicial District Court in the Parish of East Baton Rouge.

The man gave the LSU police officer a physical and clothing description of the man who spied on him. Officers were not able to locate the suspect Sunday, but the same officer returned Monday and located Jarmuskewicz on surveillance cameras, the affidavit said. The officer tracked Jarmuskewicz moving from floor to floor and entering men’s restrooms multiple times, according to the affidavit.

Jarmuskewicz was taken into custody on the second floor of the Middleton Library on Monday. During a search, a mirror was located in his front pants pocket. Jarmuskewicz did not provide officers with an explanation for the mirror and denied looking under bathroom stalls, according to the affidavit.

According to court documents, Jarmuskewicz said he was in New Orleans to attend a professional conference and was in Baton Rouge to read at the LSU library.

Parish prison personnel told the Pioneer that Jarmuskewicz was released on a $5,000 bond Wednesday.

Jarmuskewicz is a board certified doctor in the state of Minnesota holding a physician and surgeon license since 1992, according to the Minnesota Health Licensing Board. He is in private practice in Bemidji. His license is valid through April 30, 2015. Jarmuskewicz holds sub-certification in psychiatry and neurology/child and adolescent psychiatry.

Jarmuskewicz graduated with a medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee in 1984. He has practiced in Bemidji and Crookston since that time. Self-reported information to the Minnesota Health Licensing Board includes specialties in pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Akron, Ohio; general psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago and child/adolescent psychiatry at the University of Minnesota.

Psychologist Julian Gordon, stabbed at home, is registered sex offender

Dr. Julian Gordon, a one-time psychologist in the Oakland County (Michigan) court system, spent 13 years in prison for raping a boy he was supposed to be counseling, according to reports.

After he got out of prison, the state gave him back his license, though he had been fired from Oakland County’s probate court in the 1990s. Gordon, 56, told the state he was a “reformed man.” But now he faces new allegations, WXYZ reports.

Another man has made a claim that Gordon tried to sexually assault him after he got out of prison.

WXYZ reports that he was counseling Tony Esparza, 27, at Nardin Park Recovery Center. Esparza told WXYZ that he did not know of Gordon’s history.

Esparza said Gordon told him he could help him find a job if he moved in to his Waterford condo with him.

And one night, Esparza told WXYZ that Gordon got into bed with him and started touching him inappropriately, trying to have sex with him. WXYZ reports that Esparza said he fought him off with a knife.

Esparza has filed a compliant with the state for approving Gordon’s license reinstatement.

Gordon worked for Oakland County from September of 1989 to June 4, 1997, when as a senior psychologist he was terminated after criminal charges were filed against him, said Kevin Oeffner, circuit court administrator.

He was sentenced to prison by Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Rae Lee Chabot.
